Apple Watch Series 4, biggest update since the original one, faces heavy demand from day one that accepts pre-orders, so in order to solve the problem, Compal will begin mass production of Series 4 models in November, alongside Quanta Computer, according to the often reliable Taiwanese publication DigiTimes.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Quanta reached its maximum capacity for Apple Watch Series 4 production, Apple will most likely to select Compal Electronics to meet customers’ needs. Orders placed today are delayed late October shipping because of the “better than expected demand” for the latest models.
With Quanta Computer’s capacity for the Apple Watch Series 4 at its factory in Changshu, eastern China fully loaded, the wearable’s second supplier Compal Electronics reportedly will begin mass production of the smartwatch in November 2018, according to industry sources.
Kuo says Apple will ship around 18 million units in this year. However, Apple does not disclose Apple Watch sales, so we won’t know anything in shipments, but the company did say that its Apple Watch becomes world’s most popular watch that surpassed Rolex.
